Justin Bieber wears overalls to meet the Prime Minister (Flickr)
We all know Justin Bieber
has been loving him some drop-crotch pants
and leather tank tops
lately, but he really turned some heads when he showed up to receive an honorary medal from the Prime Minister of Canada in...wait for it: overalls.
And, not even fancy overalls! The pop star received a Diamond Jubilee Medal from Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Friday in his partially undone overalls, white T-shirt, and backwards baseball cap. Harper, of course, was dressed in a suit and tie, which made the Biebs' look even more cringe-worthy.
The twitterverse was buzzing with the news of this apparent fashion faux pas, naturally. One user pondered when the Biebs "became Vanilla Ice" while Gawker went straight to calling the singer a "white trash prince."
Another gal was just upset that she, too, could not wear overalls in public.
Anyway, the Biebs made light of the matter and posted an Instagram picture
of himself in said outfit with the caption, "I hope you hate my style." He also tweeted: "Overhauls lol."
By the way, the medal was in celebration of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and aimed to recognize “significant contributions and achievements by Canadians."
